Gary Morris, the CEO of the CAFL, based in Beijing remarked “we traveled to each city and sought the very best, most modern arenas in order to properly present our great sport, as it is a multimedia presentation of entertainment for the whole family. Video capabilities, audio systems, Wi-Fi for interaction, VIP suites, locker rooms, and of course the sight lines and comfortable fan seating were all considered. I am thrilled with each of the arenas in which we will present our teams and fan festivals.”

Tomorrow, the CAFL will introduce the venues and take you inside the arenas of the CAFL and the 2016 Super Series.
